Welcome to the Company of Heroes 2 walkthrough! Doug will be your voice-over commentator showing you around the game’s battles.
September 1942 – Stalingrad, USSR
Germany and USSR signed a pact of non-aggression before the invasion of Poland in 1939, but their alliance would be short-lived. In the summer of 1941, Hitler launched Operation Barbarossa, ordering four million German soldiers to invade the Soviet Union across a front spanning three thousand kilometers. During the first months of Barbarossa, Stalin and his generals struggled to mount a defense, but soon the Germans had pushed too far into a vast nation protected by a massive army and a hostile winter. By the fall of 1942, the German army had reached Stalingrad (now Volgograd), but the city was far from defenseless. Lev Isakovich met thousands of conscripts on the shores of the Volga River, where he ushered them into the besieged city.
“The Red Army and Navy and the whole Soviet people must fight for every inch of Soviet soil, fiht to the last drop of blood for our towns and villages. Onward, to victory!” -Joseph Stalin
Tip: Units in cover survive longer than those in the open. Look for Yellow and Green Shield Icons on your cursor.
September 1941 – Outskirts of Moscow, USSR
Nearly a year before the Wehrmacht reached Stalingrad, the Red Army struggled to answer the threat of Operation Barbarossa. Towns and villages throughout the western USSR were evacuated as military forces dug in and prepared for the German assault. However, the power of the Blitzkrieg overwhelmed many Soviet armies, as trained and disciplined Grenadier divisions swept across the battlefield with brutal efficiency. Stalin was desperate to prevent an attack on Moscow and would send thousands of soldiers to die in their attempts to slow the German advance. On the outskirts of the capital, Isakovich met Colonel Churkin for the first time.
“In the Soviet Army, it takes more courage to retreat than advance.” -Joseph Stalin
Tip: Use the Mobilize ability. Conscripts are readily available to capture territory and abandoned weapons / vehicles.
